Das Klapp-Buch. Wonderful Metamorphoses. Metamorphoses admirables.

(N.p. c. 1850. Small quarto.(6)ff. A book of six "metamorphoses"—moveable illustrations that change according to how the reader arranges their pages. Each of the six images has eight panels, four upper and four lower, creating four cohesive illustrations. But has the reader flips through the panels, the lower ones will still line up with the upper ones, such that parading men may be wearing skirts, as in the first metamorphosis, or a stone-mason may find himself at a washerwoman's tub, as in the fifth. All illustrations are brightly hand-colored with a tempera glaze. Rare: no copies recorded in institutional holdings. Bound in paper-covered boards with color illustration at upper cover. Spine renewed. Some soiling to very edges of pages and minor scuffs to covers, else a fine copy with rich images. Housed in cloth-covered clamshell box. Item #28044
